New Painting, SPECTRUM BOOK, and ACEOs.... [Oct. 26th, 2006|01:03 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Hi everyone!

I have a new painting, a new BOOK featuring my artwork, and also a bunch of new ACEO Cards for you today!

First off - "Spectrum 13" - is now available at most bookstores! Just saw it at our local Barnes & Noble, and it is also available at Amazon, etc. Spectrum is a fabulous book that comes out every year and it showcases the "best" fantasy, sci-fi and comic artwork that comes out that year. Every year since I was a kid I have looked forward to buying the new Spectrum, I am thrilled to say that my painting "Funeral for a Long Dead Knight" was chosen for "Spectrum 13." (Pssst - page 203!). Amazon is running a good deal on the book too - just click the link below:

CLICK HERE TO SEE SPECTRUM 13 AT AMAZON!



Next up - the new painting - she is called "Skull Stealer" - a really fun painting - a wicked fairy creature with black angel wings has snatched up a skull from an abaondoned cemetery (or so it seems). You can see her below:

"Skull Stealer" ORIGINAL PAINTING



Next up are the ACEOs - for more info about ACEO cards, how I make them & what they are, consult the individual auction descriptions - they are each one of a kind and are very cool and collectible.

To see them all together visit the ACEO section of my store here:

This year's Spectrum is really wonderful, I think it gets better every year. There are some really amazing artists in there - it is very inspiring.

Zodiac: Pisces

I was just wondering if you were going to do a Zodiac: Pisces painting. I see they you have paintings for the other ones.

Re: Zodiac: Pisces

Hey there!

Yes, I am stillw working on the series. I'm going in astrological order - I started with Aries, and the most recent one I finished was Sagittarius. That means that next will be Capricorn, and then Aquarius, and then finally Pisces (the last sign in the Zodiac!). I have been very busy this year with other projects, but don't worry, I wil finish the series eventually.

Mad respect for the fairy making diva!

I really like your work. I was just curious if you ever collaborated with anyone for like say a graphic novel.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Carrie! This year's has some extra good stuff in there, I think it might be my favourite issue yet.

Yep - it's a commission of a lady and her four kitties! I just finished it - if she doesn't mind I might post it here and maybe even offer prints, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
